Description

On the southern hills of Montalcino, the grapes are grown in stony, calcareous (rich in lime) and well-structured soil at an altitude of 720 feet above sea level. A meticulous grape selection is followed by vinification with skin contact for 10-12 days. Released in the fifth year after harvest, the wine is aged for a minimum of four years, two of those years in oak barrels of various sizes, mainly French oak barriques and partly in Slavonian oak casks.
